[movies]Spark: Authoring Experience++ in Drupal 8 core - Angela Byron, Gábor Hojtsy
Drupal's out of the box authoring experience currently leaves much to be desired, and is one of Drupal's biggest weaknesses. While it's certainly possible to create stunning interfaces for content editors in Drupal, it's a lot of work that you don't have to do in competing projects. Drupal risks becoming irrelevant if we don't fix this problem ASAP.
